Good evening from Maine were the sun has set on the month of July, 2023. This month I hosted a course on search strategies for teachers and students. If you missed it, I’ll be offering it again soon. Look for an announcement in the next couple of days about that. 

Despite being one of the rainiest summers on record, my family and I still had a lot of fun outside. We rode our bikes, picked many pounds of wild Maine blueberries and blackberries, and made a few trips to Story Land. I hope that you also had some fun in July. 
As I do at the end of every month, I’ve identified the most popular posts of the last month. Take a look at the list below to see if there’s anything interesting that you missed earlier in the month.
